MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) — According to El Universal news outlet, as part of the trial, seven members of the court will have to provide their conclusions in the case.
If Temer is impeached, the president of Deputies Chamber will become country's acting president for 90 days until Deputies Chamber elects the new president. The nationwide elections are scheduled to take place in 2018.
Temer is currently in the center of another graft scandal. The Brazilian Supreme Court has approved a probe into allegations that the president had authorized bribes to hush up a witness in a corruption scandal surrounding the state oil firm Petrobras.
